In the seventeenth chapter of the Vendidad, there is a prescription devoted to pairings of nails and clippings of hair, which as soon as they are separated from the body, belong to the Evil One as abodes of uncleanliness. Hair and nails taken from the dead are mentioned in the fable of how Zoroaster converted the royal family to the new doctrine, and how he escaped a plot against his life. According to the story, courtiers hid bones in his room, together with hair and nails robbed from the...

"Celebrities remove themselves from being important in history in exchange for the illusion of being important now. They are temporarily well-known (a consequence of working in mass media) but they do not act in any way that is historically meaningful. Typically the celebrity contributes nothing of lasting value to human culture aside from occasionally performing in a minor capacity in the artistic projects of others. The small contributions of celebrities to such artistic endeavours are...

"I no longer identify as a 'man'. This is not to say I identify as a woman but I reject the dominant constructions of 'manhood' essentially as an embarrassment. "Be a MAN!" "I'm a Man!" "There's a point, as a man when..." Blechh!! To me manhood means caring about cars, beer, wrestling, and other dumb things. - it means a debilitating, if not outright paralyzing fear of appearing feminine to even the most minuscule extent. It means combating this relentless...

New York State once produced 106 different kinds of apples, and each one looked and tasted different. This variety no doubt pleased apple-lovers, but it proved quite inefficient from the point of view of the market. It would be much more sensible if there were only three or four types of apple. Appearance and shelf-life would be important, but not flavour. In fact, favour must be eliminated because different people like different flavours. This is "irrational." If all apples taste...
